I think this is a great idea. But I think that maybe improvements over
Delphi should be put into a compiler switch so "Delphi Compatible" mode can
be enabled or disabled. That way if someone wants to port pure Delphi code,
they can without worrying that something extra might get added in.  But I
would sure hate to limit people who are smart enough to be programming in
Linux to Windows limitations :-)
